Around the world, various industries have begun their journey towards sustainability. In this sense, more and more facilities are being built and/or remodeled to be more friendly to nature and users. An example of this is the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, which now seeks to become a green air terminal.

Recently, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) announced its expansion plan, which includes the creation of a NET Zero smart building, a project that is part of its 2020-24 Master Development Program.

Similarly, during the second half of 2020, the airport’s main parking lot was undergoing remodeling to implement a modern solar panel system, which had an investment of 14 million pesos.

Currently, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport has a total of:

  • 20 positions (1,373,475 ft2 of platform)
  • 11 direct boarding corridors / 14 passenger buses
  • 2 last waiting rooms for domestic and international passengers
  • Baggage Handling System (BHS)
  • 10 emergency plants distributed by zones
  • Terminal building area of 475,517 ft2
  • Runway 04-22 of 10,187 ft by 148 ft
  • General Aviation: 8,719 ft2 of building, plus 24 positions (313,499 ft2) and 2 helidecks

During 2020, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport was positioned in the first places of passenger traffic at national level, with a total of 29 destinations (eight domestic and 21 international), 22 airlines (seven domestic and 15 international); resulting in 38,867 operations throughout the year.

Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
